On Shaheed Diwas 2022, Randeep Hooda announces his titular role in biopic ‘Swatantra Veer Savarkar’
Bollywood actor Randeep Hooda announces his titular role in the upcoming biopic, ‘Swatantra Veer Savarkar’. He will play the part of D. Savarkar, and the movie is set to go on floors in June 2022.
The Mahesh V. Manjrekar directorial will be shot across various locations in London, Maharashtra and Andaman & Nicobar Islands. As per the makers, it will highlight India’s freedom movement from a different spectrum.
Randeep Hooda feels elated that he has been chosen to play the part. “There are many heroes that have played their part in getting us our Independence. However, not everyone has got their due. Vinayak Damodar Savarkar is the most misunderstood, debated and influential of these unsung heroes and his story must be told.”
This is the second time that Randeep will be collaborating with Sandeep Singh, their earlier association being the 2016 biopic, ‘Sarabjit’.
Commenting on the collaboration, Randeep shared that he is delighted to work with Sandeep once again. He further added that it will be yet another challenging role to portray after Sarabjit.
‘Swatantra Veer Savarkar’ is produced by Anand Pandit from Anand Pandit Motion Pictures and Sandeep Singh and Sam Khan from Legend Studios and is co-produced by Roopa Pandit and Jay Pandya.
Anand says, “Cinema is a creative medium that celebrates different thought processes. Films like ‘Swatantra Veer Savarkar’ will help create a far more engaging public dialogue.”
He further added, “Veer Savarkar’s contribution cannot be ignored, I wonder why our history books never mentioned Veer Savarkar?” With this he is hopeful to bring the story of the legend to the eyes of the public.
“With Mahesh and Randeep at the helm, I am sure, we will create something memorable for audiences”, the confident producer concludes.
